Pride and Prejudice and Procrastination

Sometimes, you mean to do something, and then the internet distracts you with videos.  In college or work-type situations, this is generally a bad thing and leads to bad grades, job loss, etc.  Fortunately, in this case, my procrastination is your gain.

See, I was going to write a column this week, and then life happened, and then I was going to write it today, and the the Lizzie Bennet Diaries happened.  I love Jane Austen.  I love modern interpretations of Pride and Prejudice.  I love diaries.  The person who came up with the idea to combine these things is clearly a genius.

So I could come up with a somewhat contrived anecdote about the time I met this guy who seemed like a pompous jerk and he actually turned out to be really great…except that I haven’t actually met such a guy.  So instead, I’m just going to point you in the direction of this amazing web series.

    Well there went the last hour and a half! Hope I’m not too zonked at work tomorrow. I am such a sucker for all things Austen. Especially P&P. I bring this on myself and I regret nothing!!!

    I love LBD! It’s so creative and they’re so thorough, all of the characters have twitters and facebook pages. You get to get a glimpse at the characters that aren’t in the series yet through those. Austen is my weakness!

    I’m addicted to this web series! It’s one of the two channels I’m subscribed to on youtube, and I eagerly await the new videos every Monday and Thursday. What a great modern take on P&P <3 Too good.

    I almost believed this was just a girl with expensive video equipment and a friend who can’t really act, making her own partially-autobiographical videos…. Until her “sister” came in and I recognized her from another web series, Squaresville.
    But this seems pretty cute and relatable, for sure! Going to check out the rest. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Welp, I’m not getting anything done at work today….

    DITTO! This shall be my “Work project.” Thanks for sharing.

    I have been obsessed with this recently! Hank Green, one of the creators, is a total YouTube savant, he does a tonne of great stuff on there.

    oh yay, someone on hellogiggles finally found LBD. It’s brilliant, and so fun. <3

  • Taylor Hughes Brogan

    The girl who plays Lydia is in another webseries called Squaresville, and it’s literally the best thing ever. It’s like My So-Called life, but in 2012.

    Ugh, the LBD is so good though.
